The 20th International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2014) opened in Melbourne, Australia, on Sunday evening overshadowed by the deaths of 298 passengers aboard Malaysian Airlines flight MH17. Six delegates on their way to the conference were amongst those killed, including Professor Joep Lange, a former President of the International AIDS Society.

We extend our condolences to the families, friends and colleagues of those we have lost.
